GRANDEUR

They say Paris is a city where you fall in love, eat endless amounts of croissants and pastries, visit the museums and basically live the life of a parisian. When I arrived in Paris, indeed I was blown away by the architecture of every building. It is true that every corner of Paris is photogenic, no matter where you point your camera at, it's definitely an Instagram worthy snap. I indulged in hot chocolates and macarons every day and it became a guilty pleasure. Getting around was pretty easy, it was either by bus or the metro and pretty soon my purse was filled with the tickets from the transport systems. I preferred taking the bus as there was more to see rather than the metro where all you can see is darkness from it being underground. My next goal would be to travel other parts of Europe for new adventures, who's with me?

LIVERPOOL STREET

Needless to say, this is my favourite shade of pink. Matching this color can be pretty tricky, you either look like a giant cotton candy 
or feel like you're wearing the outfit of the year. It's almost midnight and I'm craving for some tacos and a good burrito or a pancake stack 
drizzled with maple syrup. Yes I know it's a weird sweet and savoury craving, I can't help it when I have multiple food blogs under my favourites. 
Feeling inspired to whip up something in the kitchen tomorrow, something eggy with potatoes maybe?

ON REPEAT

Title reflecting on my coats for the next couple of posts. It was 2 weeks in London, 4 days in Paris and let's face it.. I can only bring 3 to 4 coats before my luggage is being filled completely. Went to Covent Garden and to my disappointment, it wasn't how I remembered it to be from the last time I visited. Well, I'm back in sunny Singapore and the week's rest was very much needed. This afternoon was spent hanging out with my good friends over a bowl of laksa, hot wings and ice cream. Also realised the humidity is really getting to me which resulted in a 11am appointment to the salon tomorrow. 

I'm also really bothered by how my images and text are not all aligned. trying to do slight changes to this blog over time and this is definitely one I need to work on. What I'm not working on is my current addiction to the latest Arrow/Flash series. Downloaded a new episode and it's waiting for me, till next time my loves!

BONJOUR PARIS!

Bonjour! Arrived in Paris a few days ago and the wifi is better here than in London so here's a new post! I honestly lost track of the number of croissants, macarons and hot chocolates I had over the last few days. I'm leaving back to London in a couple of hours and I'm a little sad to leave Paris, I made 2 new friends here who I got the best advice from about what I want to do in life. It feels really heart-warming, knowing that people believe in me even when we were complete strangers a few days ago. People like them give me strength to continue to do what I love, even if others are against it. I mean, I really can't imagine myself having a desk with a 9-5 work life.

So... who is up for another croissant and some jam? Oui oui!

LONDON CALLING


As some of you might have seen on Instagram, I'm currently in London! I know I promised two posts before I got here but there was the first two days of Chinese New Year which resulted in last minute 4am packing... It's been a good 4 days since I'm here and it's frrrreezing but there are occasional rays of Vitamin D every now and then which I'm thankful for. Everything looks almost the same since the last time I was in London, but the funny thing is I don't remember much (I was 9 back then). Well, I do remember Harrods and catching a Harry Potter film? 

Catch up with you guys soon, I have loads more to share but museums first!

PINK AND PLEATS

Yes I'm wearing pink! And cheers to you if #01 and #02 of my 21 facts crossed your mind. Filled my closet with more pink recently so I guess you guys will be seeing more of me in that color! Have been dressing for the weather lately, it's so humid in Singapore. Just 6 more days till I get to layer up to my heart's content. So how did you guys spend your Valentine's Day? Dan and I spent our day at the beach soaking up some Vitamin D and we had MacDonald's for dinner after. No need for fancy candlelit dinners with rose petals scattered across the table or huge overpriced bouquets. Just his company itself makes me really happy. Oh and how cute is this little faux fur cross body purse? I fell in love with it ever since I received it as one of my birthday gifts. Little bags are my life and it's also a great way to carry less. Will be working on 2 more posts before I fly off. Stay with me!

ALL MY LOVE

With Valentine's day right round the corner, I couldn't wait to share with you on some yummy gift ideas that could be for yourself or your loved ones! It's easy, fun and inexpensive, say bye to fretting and racking your brains out on what to get this Valentine's Day! 

This Valentine's day falls on a weekend, what better way to wake up to a quick lovely breakfast on the go! It could be either sweet or savoury, it's entirely up to you. Plus, everything can be done in no less than 15 minutes. If your loved ones are health junkies or a super sweet tooth, prepare your jar of love the way they would love it. You could even prepare one jar for yourself too, have a breakfast in bed and start your day with kisses and a movie under your fort of blankets and pillows. Valentine's Day doesn't necessarily have to consist of expensive gifts and fancy candlelit dinners, what's most important is spending the day together with your loved ones. I made Dan promise me not to buy me flowers this year as I find the price way too ridiculous! We had a lot of fun putting this post together and we were so full after eating up whatever we made. 

Here's how and what we did!

For the Health Junkie: 

Mason Jar - Honey cornflakes with sliced almonds, strawberry low fat yogurt with strawberry slices and blueberries, topped with a dollop of honey!

Smoothie - 3 spoons of strawberry yogurt, 1/2 cup of milk, 2 strawberries, chia seeds and ice cubes.

For the Sweet Tooth: 

Mason Jar - Honey cornflakes with sliced almonds, crushed Oreos, Nutella, Reese's peanut butter cups, and a few blueberries.
Smoothie - 1/2 a banana, nutella, milk, 3 Oreos and ice cubes.

-
Mason Jars are sold on my store under the lifestyle tab, check out with the code "beverlyville" and enjoy a $1 off each mason jar you order. Since Valentine's Day is nearing, all mason jars will come with silver heart confetti in them!

Shop here.

PATCHES PLEASE


Dan and I found ourselves here after breakfast and we thought it'll be nice to shoot some photos for the blog. Whee. Also making a checklist right now to pack this pair of jeans and flats into my luggage next month. Whoever who said jeans were boring clearly doesn't know the versatility of it. They come in endless styles from the boyfriend, to the classic fit to bell bottoms which I think happens to be back in trend? Don't look so shocked, I bet you owned a pair and lived in them before like I did. So happy that I scored this pair of Dr Denim jeans for $5 and they fit like a glove. Hey, it's not everyday that you go to a flea and find a brand new pair of jeans, that fits you almost perfectly and for $5! 

It's exactly 2 weeks to Valentine's Day and I'm working on a post for both singles and lovebirds out there! Can't wait to share it here. Have a great weekend everyone, stay gold!

Wearing: Zara white pleated top, Love Beverly necklace, Dr Denim jeans, vintage crochet clutch with Kate Spade keyring, Zara leopard flats.

PAINTED PONIES


Today marks the 26th page of the 2015 book. I've been absent for awhile now because so much has happened lately. I wouldn't say I started January off on a bad note, but I did spend New Year's in bed with a bad flu plus the raspiest voice ever. I also flew to Thailand for a week and returned home knowing that my beloved grandmother didn't have much time left with us. True enough, she did pass on. I've learned so much from everything that happened and drove all the energy into better things. There's this quote that I live by and I literally swear by it. "Everything is energy and thats all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics. -Bashar" This is by far the best quote I've read in my life. We're onto the last week of January and pretty soon I'll be on a 14 hour flight ready for my next adventure. Thank you, if you've been following up on my lifestyle, outfit and travel journeys, I truly appreciate it and it inspires me to want to capture more unforgettable moments on Beverly Ville.


“And the seasons they go 'round and 'round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game."

-Joni Mitchell
